Gum in a dryer

Thankfully, removing gum from the dryer is more of a pain in the **** than actually difficult. There are a couple of approaches you can take.

The Melt it off Method.

Use a hair dryer to heat the gum until it is pliable and then scrape the gum off of the dryer.

The Freeze it Off Method.

Get a handful of ice cubes and a nylon scraper or an old credit card. Apply the ice cube to the gum and then scrape it off. Repeat until all of the visible gum has been removed.

Whichever method you use, inspect the drum carefully, the gum is sneaky and will hide where the fin meets the drum and on the back wall, and on door, etc. Use a flashlight to be sure there isn't any gum hiding in the drum.

Then get either Goo Gone or for electric dryers WD-40 works, too -do NOT use WD-40 in a gas dryer- and apply the solvent to paper towels. Carefully and thoroughly wipe out the entire inside of the dryer drum. This is to get rid of any lingering gum residue that might be hard to see.Do not skip the rinsing step. It is especially important if you used WD-40.

The next load through the RINSED dryer should be a load of rags, not your best blouse or favorite jeans. Got that?

Help..a piece of gum was found in my kenmore elite front loader. there is gum stuck all inside the drum. how should i get this clean?

I normally do not endorse specific products, but I have used "Goo-Gone" for just about any type of gummy or sticky substance and it works well. They sell it in a gel form that can be sprayed on allowed to sit for a few minutes. I would recommend you first use a straigth razor and, going with the curved surface of the drum, carefully peel off any large globs. Use care not to apply enough pressure to rmeove the pain off the drum surface. Then, use the gum remover for the remaining residue. Using terry cloth material like an old wash cloth or towel works well at removing gunk without damaging the surface. Once you have the gum cleaned off, use a good general purpose spray cleaner (like "409") to clean any of the gum remover residue off the drum surface.

If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
